Rising Supercars star Broc Feeney will switch from Tickford Racing to Triple Eight for his second season in the Dunlop Super2 Series.

The 18-year-old will join fellow second-year Super2 driver Angelo Mouzouris in an expanded two-car Triple Eight line-up.

Feeney moved into Super2 with Tickford this year following victory in the Super3 Series in 2019 driving for Paul Morris Motorsports.

He showed flashes of speed in 2020, including two-fourth place race finishes, and ultimately ended up seventh in the three-round season.

Bathurst proved both a low and a high point - crashing out of the Super2 round in qualifying, before co-driving to a top 10 finish with James Courtney in the 1000.

“It’s hard to put into words how excited I am to join the team in 2021 and to return for my second season in Super2,” said Feeney.

“It’s an unbelievable opportunity to be able to join Triple Eight and a dream come true to join such a dominant team.

“I have a clear goal in 2021 and that is to win the Super2 Series. I know Triple Eight will give me the best opportunity to reach that goal.”

Amid a rapid rise, Feeney already has his eyes on the main game.

“My goal is to make it to the Supercars Championship, and I know racing at Triple Eight will give me the best shot at the Super2 Series which will hopefully show that I am ready,” he said.

Mouzouris is also keen to take the next step in his career in 2021, after finishing ninth in this year’s Super2 series.

Like Feeney, the Formula Ford graduate's final position was hurt by crashing out of the Bathurst round in a brutal Saturday qualifying session.

“I’m super excited moving into my second tin-top season with Triple Eight, and I can't wait to move forward and build on what I have learnt this year,” he said.

“I just want to see how 2021 plays out; I obviously want to do the best I can on and off the track and continue to improve.

"There is no set position goal other than to do the best I can, however there are personal goals that the team and I want to achieve.

“I’m excited for Broc to join the team too. It will be great having a teammate to learn off and push myself even further next year."

Next year marks a return to a two-car Super2 line-up for Triple Eight, having run a pair of entries in 2019 - for Kurt Kostecki and Brenton Grove - before trimming to one this season.

Co-owner Jessica Dane said: “Over the last few years, Triple Eight has focused increasingly on developing young talent in motorsport, including drivers, engineers and mechanics.

“To have Broc joining Angelo is really exciting because it creates opportunities for more learning and growth across the board.

“It was unfortunate for both drivers that the pandemic disrupted their first year in Super2, but they showed great potential in the handful of races in 2020.

"Our goal as a team next year will be to help Angelo and Broc maximise this opportunity and they’ll have the support of the whole Triple Eight team every step of the way.”
